If I'm not mistaken, there are some store closings at the start of each year. Am I misremembering this? If not, any thoughts on which locations will be targeted?
I heard someone had a great complaint that went straight to the old man, then the edict was issued. Why is the cabin an issue?
Our store never has fish stuff in stock. Anyone else? Really starting to grind my gears. People come to the bass expecting stuff for… you guessed it… BASS. What the heck! What do I tell them when the poles are all gone. Bait, line, fish gear, not... — read more
Academy Sports is kicking our butts. New stores all over!
Hi there! Is anyone aware of the cutoff date for deciding on COBRA and the expiration of our benefits?
Has anyone else heard that we will be getting rid of club managers and going to a team lead? Rumor is another department manager probably front end will be over club and it’s going to have a team lead now.
My store hasn’t had an HR employee since last year. Ever since I’ve been working completely insane hours and everyone’s time off/available hours have been completely ignored. There’s some serious issues that we have no one to talk to or mediate with... — read more
A lot of theft. We tried to get more club cards. But just didn't work out. The shoplifters don't sign up for credit cards.
Retail Sorter has been out of service for 3 weeks, the primary sorter for the building. Are we out of money? Why would a company like this allow your primary sorter be down for so long? Read the writing on the wall people they are going to shut... — read more
Our store hired half a dozen bed bath and beyond employees from a shutdown store and they can’t handle how we do things. Constantly complaining about shift times and lack of resources. We gave a lot of them positions that haven’t been filled in a... — read more

Now how did the Cabelas layoff site work out for Cabelas. Although i am pretty sure most people would think a site like the Cabelas layoff com had no effect on the outcome. I am pretty sure nothing positive came out of the site and hopefully no... — read more
If ops support would watch customers in the store and stop watching the employees then maybe the store in macon ga would not have to cut hours so much, they are watching employees to see what they are doing so they can run back to managers when the... — read more
Anyone else a little worried that RedHead/Cabelas products are getting huge price increases and hours being cut earlier than usual? I’ve seen some items have $50 price increases.
Macon ga store it is sad the way employees are treated like cr-p, we have no workers as they are cutting hours like crazy and the workers that are full time are having to do everything, there are days you don't have people in some of the department's... — read more
Company let most of their maintenance managers go in an attempt to save money. The facilities department as a whole has been decimated and they abandoned a lot of their preventative maintenance programs. Getting worse and will take years to get... — read more
Anyone else’s store run down going into the holidays? I feel like we haven’t done repairs in years and everything is broken.
They want to cut payroll even more. Sinking ship.
I started bass pro not long ago and the club manager is absolutely horrible to me. She treats me like cr-p and starts rumors. I went to HR but he is too new and out GM is never in the store.
Anyone have a better understanding of why price increase got insane over the last month for products just at bass pro and why the southern market is getting screwed on inventory? We have things marked 10-20 percent higher than at academy or most... — read more
For years we have suffered unbelievable heat issues in our store. Yesterday was 96 degrees. We were supposed to have a new store years ago. Mall in bankruptcy again. This is bad enough when they posted jobs…. It says must be able to work in in... — read more
Over $5 for gasoline. Over $6 for diesel. This will be a rough summer.
I’ve been with this company for 5 years and it really feels like things are coming to a stand still with employees. This new review process has really gotten under my skin and for the past 2 months I’ve only been allowed 35-37 hours a week as a full... — read more
Aren't we due another restructuring? That seems to be the main tool management uses when they need to pretend they're doing something.
Is pretty bad when they conserve full-time 37 hours or less. To me full time is 40 hours, and the management sucks they expect one person to do everything & know everything! Everyone that’s good has Already left or plan on leaving. In micromanage... — read more
Keep cutting back the full-time hours to encourage to them to leave. Eventually a part-timers ran store will turn off customers looking for experienced help. I think the company is not getting the best corporate decision makers. Something something... — read more
I’m gone! It was exhilarating! It was also kind of sad that I was ignored by upper management my entire last 2 weeks. They wouldn’t even look me in the eye. HR full on ignored my questions when asking about my retirement. I know I put my all into... — read more
I’m not gonna say how long I’ve actually been there but it’s been well over 10 years. I’m officially on to better, more pay better flexibility, no weekends, no nights, no holidays and very similar employment! The moment I gave my notice which was a... — read more
Waiting to see how they give raises this spring
A supervisor told me the company cut up to 500k in payroll for every region. Anyone know when this is supposed to take place?
You would think a Multimillion dollar company would up the pay for all of it’s employees with cost of living going up. But no they haven’t and probably never going to, this is why the company is loosing some many people.
Pretty much all my colleagues who left now have higher pay. Staying here means totally underselling yourself. Now that I've started applying for other jobs, I feel pretty stupid that I didn't do it a long time ago. It seems really difficult to... — read more
It's dead in here
The real reason is the off cycle pay increases that every hourly employee received in 2021 to stay competitive with the minimum wage increase is eating through the payroll because they did not give any stores any more payroll dollars to compensate... — read more
